3 Ways to “Spring Clean” Your Dental Care Routine

Marietta GA Family Dentist

It’s that time of year. The outside temperatures are warming up, fresh spring flowers are budding, and you’re feeling that extra punch of energy to spruce things up around the house. As you clean out your closets and hose down your porch, don’t forget about the spring cleaning you could be doing for your mouth. Sprucing up your dental hygiene routine can go a long way in boosting the appearance, health and confidence of your smile!

Here are three things you can do to “spring clean” your smile this year:

#1 Replace Your Toothbrush

How long have you been using your current toothbrush? If it has been longer than three months of if you notice frayed bristles, it is time to make a switch. Consider investing is a better model this season or even buying an electric toothbrush for different but thorough brushing approach.

#2 Invest in New Flossing Tools

Are you bored with using the same old floss? Do you avoid flossing at all? Flossing can seem like a chore to many people. And it may seem like your current roll of floss will never end. However, you should know that there are several floss varieties and flossing tools out there that can make the job easier and more enjoyable.  For example, there is waxed and unwaxed flossing thread as well as several flavor choices. If you’d prefer a method that requires less dexterity and energy, invest in a Y-shaped flossing stick or a powered water flosser. We upgrade our wardrobe and hairstyling products, why not renovate our dental hygiene tools too?

#3 Schedule Your Dental Checkup

If you are serious about freshening up your smile, a visit to the dentist is the best place to start. Spring is an excellent time to schedule your routine dental checkup and cleaning. Remember that only a professional dental cleaning can remove hardened plaque and tartar along your teeth and gum line. Not only does a routine cleaning prevent decay and gum disease, but it can also polish off dingy stains from your smile. As you show off your freshly painted toes in your flip flops this spring, you can also reveal a fresher and brighter smile too!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
